TENACIOUS D announce The Spicy Meatball Tour Australia & New Zealand – July 2024

5 min read

Are you ready?! Following massive sold out shows across Europe, UK and the USA in 2023 – which should come as no surprise for the Greatest Band That Ever Played on Planet Earth – GRAMMY®-winning dynamic duo Tenacious D, featuring Jack Black and Kyle Gass, will bring their Spicy Meatball Tour down under to Australia and New Zealand in July 2024!

​Performing seven huge arena shows on today’s just-announced run, these will be Tenacious D’s first live performances on our shores since 2013. Tickets will go on sale Friday 9 February (12pm local time) via frontiertouring.com/tenaciousd.

Before they were known as the best rock band on earth, the former theatre students first formed Tenacious D back in the late ‘90s in Los Angeles. No one could have ever dreamed of where the band’s genius would take them, but take them it did…

Beloved by fans and critics worldwide, the Tenacious D journey includes a hit HBO variety series in 1999, a Platinum-certified self-titled album in 2001, and a feature film – Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny – in 2006. 2012 release Rize of the Fenix earned a GRAMMY® nomination for ‘Best Comedy Album’, the band taking home their first win in 2014 for ‘Best Metal Performance’.

In 2013, Black and Gass created Los Angeles’ music and comedy event Festival Supreme (which has featured the likes of Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Flight of the Conchords and more). 2018 delivered animated film Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto – which saw each frame hand-drawn by Black, and characters voiced by the band, who also recorded the accompanying soundtrack. A graphic novel completed the Post-Apocalypto universe in 2020.

It didn’t stop there: in 2021/22, Tenacious D covered songs for charity and launched a fibre bars line. They continued their creative streak with Words + Music | Vol. 29 | Tenacious D’s The Road To Redunktion, an Audible Original featuring archival audio.

Just last year Tenacious D launched The Spicy Meatball Tour, performing in 24 cities and selling out London’s O2 the week it was announced. They released their latest hit song ‘Video Games’ – their first new track in five years – and paid tribute to Chris Issak with a viral hit take on his classic ‘Wicked Game’. And finally in December 2023 Jack Black delivered another smash with his surprise hit ballad ‘Peaches’ from the Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Tenacious D remains the Greatest Band That Ever Played on Planet Earth, selling out shows worldwide…. Don’t miss the one and only Tenacious D, when they return to Australia and New Zealand this July!
